by that measure in the 1990s in russia. one clue is the subsidies that you could get for the import of tax-free tobacco and alcohol to benefit good causes such as the red cross. this was profitable and, therefore, of interest. it's even a science fiction story. because what we're dealing here really when you come right down to it is the meeting of two alien civilizations after 70 years of the soviet period. the oil industry in particular grew up in almost complete isolation from the west, and this is virtually a unique case. we have other places where oil industries have grown up, where oil industries are run by national oil companies, but in almost every case -- in fact in every case -- these industries were first founded by foreigners and then were taken over. not so in the case of russia where from the 1920s on at any rate or for all practical purposes the oil industry was home grown and developed its own culture, its own civilization even as the soviet union did with its own language and its own culture. i sometimes like to tell my classes that the story of russia in the 20th century i

't marginalize it all. >> say on the tax policy, they fought on raising taxes on the rich. 60% to 70% of the public agree with the president on that. so they're marginalized on a lot of policy matters, and the stupid comments don't come out. >> coming out for lower taxes are not going to get you beat. why don't they stick to the strong points? republicans looked ridiculous this week when they decided to go after hillary clinton, who is riding so high in the polls. why did they go after her at the very point she was at her strongest, they attacked. let's take a look. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable not to know of the request for security that really i think cost these people their lives. >> madam secretary, you let the consulate become
this. restart. marshall friday. many of you nestle listing. so i'm very, very proud that tax papers are here, as i said, where they belong. now to return to his question, actually, initially i had a very negative approach. it did not start out very well. when jack retired he came back. he brought home with them about 20 boxes of the biggest mess you ever saw. jack was not just organized. he was opposed to this organization. anyway, i started out to help him sort the papers. and so i have bought all these file boxes. about folders and everything. the pick of the paper and sick and the way you think this one goes? the atlanta constitution or the marvin griffin administration. he was sick and give me that and start reading it. he read every piece of paper. he could not part with a single one. after today's idea of. okay. it's all yours. the second reason i had a negative impression was that they brought silver fish into the house. [laughter] so after he died in that a side that, you know, his memoir needed to be completed. it was a wonderful read. an important book. i knew that meant a
friend. >>> let's check in with anderson cooper. >>> billions of your tax dollars used and not much to show for it. this is outrageous. it was money wasted under the pretense of transforming a rail system. we're keeping them honest. they weren't such good pals. hillary clinton, president obama cap off a run as secretary of state on a sit-down interview on "60 minutes." >>> he was an inspiration to photo journalists around the world. tim heathering ton died doing what he does best, what happened in the midst of world. libya, 40 years old, he was a friend to this program. i'll speak to his close friend and colleague sebastian younger who put together an amazing documentary celebrating his life. that and more at the top of the hour. >>> our fifth story "outfront," changing the rules of the game. republicans in a number of states that president obama won in november want to change the way electoral votes in their states are distributed. currently all states except nebraska and maine award all electoral votes to one candidate. states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, and ohio are lo
in washington with the tax and spend liberals. every one of those phrases is contemporary. it is and attitude for more than a judgment that shuts us off from accurate history and from their promise of democracy. i am hoping this issue focusing on race and people's resistance to discuss race, to insist that race is solved and it is unsolvable. they're both mean we do not need to discuss it. this issue discusses it. when we do discuss it, when we learn things, that is when good things happen. that is the doorway to the promise of freedom. america is still not there yet. i hope we can take advantage of this time. we're marching through these 50- year anniversaries. bring our history back into balance and address the problems of the future with intelligence and with patriotism. thank you.

, it became mandatory and taxed. and so perceptions about things change. >> i'll just add one more comment in response p to ricardo's statement which is that we are poisoning the rain forest because we are engaged in aerial spraying as most of you know, i'm sure, in colombia which has a whole range of negative impacts on that country and on the amazon. and just to end with an anecdote, the u.s -- a former u.s. ambassador to peru who was ambassador in the late '80s told me a story once. they were trying to convince the peruvians who had refused -- both bolivia and peru have refused to allow aerial spraying programs in the country. they were trying to convince peru, so they brought a delegation i think it was to georgia to show them how they would do the spraying. and they started the little presentation, and then out walked these men in white astronaut suits covered from head to toe with the sample of the spraying and the peruvians just ran and said, no way, we're not going to do that.
